Reality Check-Install cost for sheet vinyl?
We are in the final stages of an addition and remodel, and are going to install a good quality sheet vinyl in the kitchen/dining area, powder room, laundry room and mud room. All of the rooms being done open off the kitchen/dining area. The total amount of flooring needed was measured to be 95 sq. yds. We were shocked when the installation quote came in at $1970--more than $20 per yard! This includes: labor, sub floor and "appliance". There is already a chip board sub floor in place, and I know that there will be a thin covering applied over that to prevent stains and nail holes from showing. We are going to get other quotes, but I'm just wondering--is this a normal and reasonable cost for installing sheet vinyl? We were under the impression that sheet vinyl was one of the less expensive materials to install. This seems rather high. We live in Wisconsin. Opinions, please?
